Families, whose loved ones have made the great gift of leaving their bodies to science, will have a beautiful place to remember them.

A new memorial in the rose gardens at Woronora Memorial Park (cemetery and crematorium) will be opened on Monday, April 10, and the community is invited to attend.

“symbolise both the sacrifice people have made to help future generations and the incredible and complex miracle that is the human body.”

The Wonderfully Made Memorial, as it is called, will hold the cremated ashes of the remains of bodies left for science as well as human tissues from a range of clinical settings, including the coroner’s office.

Individual, small plaques can be placed around the memorial.
